AMONG WOLVES is an immersive, vérité doc about an exceptional motorcycle club in Bosnia Herzegovina. Since the brutal civil war, this gang, led by a multi-ethnic group of veterans, has increasingly done impressive and inspiring work to help themselves and those around them heal—including caring for and guarding the threatened herd of wild horses with which they identify. This 'gang' of horses make up the metaphorical heart of the film – and live in the hills of the former front line of the war. Awards at Chicago IFF, DOC LA, Anchorage IFF and others.
★★★★ (out of 4) "Not your garden-variety documentary… blooms into a revelation of character and depth of emotion that are completely unexpected." - Winston-Salem Journal
